Beckett Oil Burner HELP!
« on: January 03, 2010, 07:57:54 PM »
We have a Beckett Oil Burner that keeps tripping. My husband has changed the thermostat, the oil filter, and the nozzle. Any ideas? Please help! Thanks!

I don't have alot of oil experience, but I would check the cad cell.  It may be dirty and can't see the flame, causing the unit to trip.
The primary control or a weak ignition transformer may also cause the unit to trip.

sounds as maybe your ignition transformer is weak ( call a pro, you don't want to test youself) as their is EMTREMELY high secondary voltage involved.  doing the things you did already (filter and nozzle) are both great starts.  You could also try tapping the top of the primary control (gray box) beside the transformer.  Sometime the points on the contacts inside become warn and weak and can drop out without notice.
